Sunshine Coast Heart Specialists and SCUPH – great partners in your heart health
We work extensively with the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital (SCUPH) to provide world-class cardiac care for patients requiring interventional cardiology services.
SCUPH is the only comprehensive cardiac hospital on the Sunshine Coast, with on-site Cardio-thoracic Surgery and a Structural Heart Intervention Program. It’s the only local hospital to offer a 24/7/365 acute heart attack service.
Since opening in 2013, more than 20,000 cardio-vascular procedures/operations have been performed by the heart and vascular team at SCUPH, including over 500 cardiac surgical procedures, 10,000 coronary angiogram/stent operations, and 200 TAVI procedures.
Our Sunshine Coast Heart Specialists team has led the way with innovation and excellence, bringing new technology and state of the art treatments to SCUPH, so that our patients can be cared for and looked after locally.
